Artist Crush: Jessica Bell

Thursday, July 8, 2010 · 7 Comments

Jessica Bell was one of my picks from the Cheaper Show #9*, but I’m featuring her again because her simple but stunning work deserves your full attention! Bell works with a variety of materials (acrylic, fabric, paper collage and drawing) to create her organic-feeling, exquisitely-structured mix-media pieces. The artist was born in Montreal but resides in Vancouver, home of The Cheaper Show.

* The Cheaper Show is an annual art show in Vancouver that features the work of many hot young artists. All work sells for $200. Very cool stuff.
